Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss Haul & NOTD!

Hello everyone! Very quick beauty haul for you guys, have been a while since one of these!! πŸ™‚ I recently picked up some Essence XXXL Shine Lip Glosses, which I get from Ulta! They are super inexpensive ($1.29 each) and really lovely. “Ultimate shine for your lips! The XXXL shine lipgloss pampers your lips without leaving behind a sticky feeling. Contains vitamin e and panthenol to prevent your lips from feeling dry.”

I really love the colors, a lot of them do have some shimmer in them but nothing too chunky and unflattering. Also Essence doesn’t test on animals! πŸ˜€ I do have another one of these, Nude Kiss, somewhere but can’t find it!! lol They are pretty big, a little smaller than the size of your hand.Β  The caps are metal, and I really like the packaging!

These are the colors, Nude Candy, Sparkling Papaya, and Forever Rose. Nude Candy is a very light creme pink with no shimmer, Sparkling Papaya is a sheer coral with some tiny shimmers, and Forever Rose is a sheer peach with tiny shimmers. The formula is very slick and not sticky. It’s one of those glosses I don’t mind wearing on their own. It leaves a nice tint on the lips and a very wet look. Nude Candy is the most opaque out of them all, and works amazing over a creme lipsticks!

Here’s the applicator, it’s actually really nice, it’s soft and long so it makes it easy to apply. I don’t much like brush applicators so I’m really happy about this!

Swatches: Nude Candy, Sparkling Papaya, and Forever Rose

Lastly this is my NOTD. I used a creme bright pink/peach colors, with a custom gold glitter franken on top. I had to carefully place each glitter where I wanted them so that look a little time!

Been loving wearing these nails!

What do you guys think!? πŸ˜€
